Open your wardrobe doors and have a good look at what you have. Do you own a lot of the same type of item? Do you have one suit that you’ve flogged for every job interview, funeral and wedding? It is overflowing but you still feel like you have nothing exciting to wear?
Alarna Hope will remove what you don’t wear and don’t need, diffuse the emotional baggage and create new outfits that capture your style, with clothing you already own. Let your clothes breathe and learn how to store and take care of your pieces- the right way!
This is a valuable service for all lifestyles and budgets and can be booked for Sydney and Illawarra based clients.
Your wardrobe, no matter how big or small, is a space you use every day so it needs to be easy to navigate and filled with things you wear and feel great it. The decisions you make when picking your clothing of a morning can affect your whole day, so if you’re facing any of the below issues in your wardrobe, then I can help!
The Wardrobe Makeover service is designed to work with what you already own, help you define your personal style and create an organised, easy to navigate space. Clients who have a large amount of clothing in their wardrobe or those who don’t quite know where to start when it comes to building a personal style often find this package the best starting point.
The first step to building your personal style is to have a Style Consultation. Alarna will ask you a series of questions relating to your lifestyle and taste to determine what areas of your wardrobe you need to build upon most and to set a plan to create or enhance your style.
Next, Alarna will asses your current wardrobe and identify any clothing ‘gaps’ you may have in your wardrobe. You’ll learn what your habits are when it comes to choosing clothing and you’ll see how to move past your habits and create a well-rounded wardrobe. The culling process means that we may remove some items from your wardrobe that aren’t working, don’t fit or that you don’t love. What remains in your wardrobe will be only the pieces that you wear regularly and feel great in.
After finding out what stays in your wardrobe, Alarna will organise your wardrobe to make it more user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing. Alarna aims to create a space that is not only easy to find your clothing in, but something that doesn’t cause ‘mind-clutter’ or stress. Your wardrobe will look streamlined and polished and once the organisation aspect of the session is complete, it’s time to make some outfits.
Alarna will put outfits together based on what you currently own and make a list of items that would benefit your wardrobe and sense of style. This list will be presented to you following your session and is called a Style Guide. It includes your wardrobe colouring, general alterations specific to your shape, the items you’re missing from your wardrobe in a detailed list and can include various other styling tips at your request.
Because so much information is given to you in your Wardrobe Makeover session, Alarna gives her clients additional written information to keep at home and refer to later. You’ll be given a Style Guide, personalised to your needs, as well as washing, tailoring and alterations guides. As part of your service, you’ll have a 1/2 hour tailoring appointment you can book with Alarna at one of her recommended tailors in Sydney’s CBD. In that session, she’ll discuss with the tailor what alterations you may need and we can make repairs on any existing garments.
As a business owner, I know when to outsource what I can’t do. Alarna made getting ready simple, she’s an expert with men’s fashion and turned my wardrobe into something I’m proud to show off.
The Fashion Industry has a huge impact on the environment and when there are so many people out there in need, Alarna recommends clients donate un-used and pre-loved clothing to various charities that help clothe others and recycle what can’t be worn via programs that can turn your old clothing into anything from insulation to furniture.
Because wardrobes come in all shapes and sizes, the Wardrobe Makeover is sold at a set rate. Some wardrobes may only take a few hours while others can take 5-6 hours, but don’t stress, if you’re not a big fan spending an entire day on your wardrobe, that’s okay, Alarna will be there to do the majority of the grunt work for you!
Thanks, Alarna, my wardrobe is much neater and I can make outfits way better than I used to! The styling guide you sent was helpful and I like how you organised my wardrobe. P.S. I think I’ve mastered folding my knitwear now, thanks for teaching me!
If you feel you’re lacking space, or the know how to find suitable storage solutions for your clothing, Alarna is able to provide her organisational expertise to consult on additional wardrobe storage and make simple adjustments (such as new hangers, storage baskets and shoe care) and can arrange changes to take place within your storage budget.
Clients who are moving home, or have never quite gotten the best use out of their wardrobe find this service add-on useful and this add-on can be suited to renters who can’t make structural changes.
